Thank you! I really really really wanted to use the DSM Feedback module for the 'guitar' part, but it didn't quite come out in time. Ironically that module was released on the exact day that I made this arrangement public on YouTube :P. I think something like an optomix would have worked well for it as well. I almost bought one for it but ultimately ran out of time.

Should be arriving pretty soon! I think mine shipped yesterday, but I haven't received confirmation yet.

I have the LxD instead of the Optomix (for space reasons), and I think it's going to pair very well with the DSM03.

New Improvisation:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l33wrj9xKjA

Yes! I love that sound that you're getting with your Poly Evolver on this. I've listened to it twice already :).

I know you like to make choir patches, and if I may do so... I'd like to recommend the Doepfer A-104 Trauotonium Formant Filter as it can really add just the right amount of extra resonance. Although I use mine with monophonic sounds and make chords with multiple passes of recording-- I'm not sure how it would handle a polyphonic open voice. I know that formants for the same vowel will change depending on the range. At any rate, if you ever go down the Eurorack hole, I think you would get a lot of use out of that module.

Steven -

Thanks for the advice.  That PEK Patch was not my choir patch.  I have one that is much better and more realistic, even though I have no interest in truly emulating a real choir.  But thanks for the filter suggestion.  It does sound intriguing, though.  Can you link to a sample of your use of it?

I recorded an original arrangement of the Theme of Love from Final Fantasy IV:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vgcp_lj7H-4

It's mostly Eurorack, although there is also quite a bit of MoPho on the track :)

I just got to hear this now.  That was a superb arrangement, Steven.  I'm not familiar with the music, but it sounds like a mournful European folk song.  Very tastefully and professionally done.

An odd one for posting in synth forums in a way, only as it's much more of a 60's/70's pop (with psych-proggy? touches) type ting... Many things people post here are purely electronic, but this has an old Ludwig kit, an acoustic guitar and flute on display. That said, there's also huge globs of Prophet 5, Micromoog, Pro One, Juno 6, MS-10 and MS-20, Wurly 200 and my new and much beloved Prophet 6. I've basically had myself to stop adding more synths atop the main riff. Hope you enjoy... https://soundcloud.com/anton-barbeau/its-the-coffee-that-makes-the-man-go-mad-rough-mix

Sounds great. Nice to hear a song. :-)

Thanks Vinny. As much a synth-obsessive as I am, I'm a basic, grunty singer/songwriter first and foremost. Can't remember the last time I brought a synth to a gig!

Ant of 12047, nothing wrong with covers ;). BTW, that is a very interesting take on such a cool classic! Love the feel & sounds.

Speaking of covers, I forgot to post this earlier! I had the honor of adding a few parts to one of Ace Waters's video game cover songs. If you guys aren't aware of his channel yet, please check it out! Tons of great synth action :)

Anyways I added some MoPho melodies as well as a little solo as one of my parts:

(Almost) entirely modular, with heavy reliance on the DSM03. The synthesizer part is all a single take with a single patch. Warning: I've been pretty pissed off most of the week.

Cool piece and a pretty good outlet for being pissed off (a sentiment I share  :-X)!  ;)

In contrast to chysn's quiet piece, I present Secretion of the Wafer. The main keys are Prophet 6 and Juno 6 - the chordal washes. I tracked one the P6 then the Juno, one take each, so it's pretty loose going. The solo is Micromoog and there are slight bits of Prophet 5  scattered about, but not likely noticeable. Hope you guys enjoy!

I interrupt the soaring beauty and lush grandeur of Tim's latest for sort of an experiment.

There are a couple of concepts in play here:

https://soundcloud.com/beige-maze/who-are-you-really-and-what-were-you-before

(1) An earnest attempt at Karplus-Strong synthesis with the DSM03. Rather than trying to play the DSM03 as a sound source, I'm providing my own tuned impluses. I'm sort of alternating between struck metallic surfaces and plucked... maybe "strings"... by adjusting the feedback time for a signal that's already in tune. I need to work on this a bit. I think I can combine this with a low pass gate to make the result less harsh, but that's for another piece.

(2) I'm working on developing a compositional technique that involves writing scales instead of notes. I come up with several motifs on the piano, and write down the notes in the motifs until I have four "scales." They're not full scales as we usually think of them, though; they're just sets of notes that include all the notes in each motif, so they're between 4 and 7 notes. I go through these scales one at a time, entering them into the ÁScale. Various modulation sources decide what notes are actually played, but the notes are constrained to the ones in the original motifs. Since I'm not immediately shifting from one scale to another (I'm just toggling buttons on the ÁScale), a listener can sort of hear gradual transitions from one scale to the next.

Finally got some time over this holiday weekend to go into the music room.   "Moonlight Over the Rockies" is a blend of orchestral and synth.

The P-08 is featured.  The initial melody, cellos and string accompaniment are the P-08.  the P-08 really makes this production.

The orchestral sounds are EastWest Symphonic Orchestra software.  The piano and bass are my trusty old Yamaha S90, which I also use as my controller.  The echo snare and some bell sounds are a DX-7.

BTW, there was no sequencing and no quantizing.  What you hear is what I played.   :)

Enjoy!

As a VERY HAPPY user of the Mopho desktop i just upgraded my gear with a used Tetra and:oh my god!! i love it so much!
Such a MONSTER! and the fact that you can upgrade with polychain makes it so amazing too!
This is the first proper track i made ONLY with Tetra for synths to test its capabilities and Neunaber for FX.And I'm very excited and satisfied by this synthesizer!!
